Now, you're talking-- alas, however, there is no such option! I scrolled down to the bottom of the page and nothing there!

Ooops! OK-- it's not lower-right, but on the right-hand side!!

As to Mr. Cranky, this is about old historical documents, not movies, but at the speed these things flash, I can't see that being much use even for movies.

It's too bad that the default isn't a static thumbnail of the cover page, with an option to turn on more-- at a slower refresh rate. Now, it's all or now-- no thumbnail or irritating flashing.

In any event, appreciate the feedback. That's a big help and makes the site usable!

Hey, Thanks Jeff. That does work better than my suggestion.
Now if there was only a button to hide only the images I find unpleasant.
